Effectiveness of a loudness model for time-varying sounds in equating the loudness of sentences subjected to different forms of signal processing..

A model for the loudness of time-varying sounds [Glasberg and Moore (2012). J. Audio. Eng. Soc. 50, 331-342] was assessed for its ability to predict the loudness of sentences that were processed to either decrease or increase their dynamic fluctuations. In a paired-comparison task, subjects compared the loudness of unprocessed and processed sentences that had been equalized in (1) root-mean square (RMS) level; (2) the peak long-term loudness predicted by the model; (3) the mean long-term loudness predicted by the model. Method 2 was most effective in equating the loudness of the original and processed sentences.
